The Duke of Edinburgh, Royal Companion of the Order of Canada?

HRH The Duke of Edinburgh is a member of the
national orders of Australia & New Zealand
but not Canada.
Below is the Letter to the Editor that I wrote to the Canadian national newspaper, the Globe & Mail, in response to that newspaper's splendid editorial of March 10, in which the paper called upon the Canadian government to confer the highest grade of the Order of Canada on HRH The Duke of Edinburgh (Editorial may be read at this LINK). The Duke is due to visit Canada in April. The on-line version of my letter may be read at this LINK. The print version of my letter is reproduced below:
